I have been told that “finding your voice” is one of the most important tasks when establishing the brand for your organization. I asked myself, how do you find your voice when so often we have been rendered voiceless. As a woman, mom, midwife and a minority I am passionate about all women and young ladies knowing and believing that they are beautiful, strong, and powerful beyond belief. This beauty, strength, and power comes from within and is outwardly expressed in how we care for our bodies and love the ones who have been entrusted to us. As a midwife it is my life’s goal to make a significant impact on lowering the infant and maternal mortality and morbidity rate within the United States and across the world. The voice of My Body Is Beautiful is to echo the voices of women and young ladies as they navigate caring for their bodies, pregnancy, postpartum, and parenting. It is our goal to empower them through education, mentorship, and advocacy; build a national network of support groups; and aid in lowering the infant and maternal mortality and morbidity rate through community engagement, information, and social action so that women can make informed decisions about their care.
I hope you carry with you this thought, “Our bodies are an amazing and complex asset, we are the most dynamic POWERHOUSE there is! We are capable, we are equipped, and we have been powering life since creation.”
